Pompompurin Cafe Opening




The well-loved Sanrio POMPOMPURIN character-themed café has finally made its way to Singapore. Isn’t it wonderful that there is no longer a need to travel to Japan, Taiwan or Hong Kong to hunt for this adorable Sanrio café to fulfill your long time dream of meeting POMPOMPURIN?

Featuring POMPOMPURIN, a yellow golden retriever created by Sanrio in 1996, each café around the world has a different theme. Inspired by Singapore’s lush greenery, the first POMPOMPURIN Café in South-east Asia takes on the “Garden City” theme.

The opening of the café yesterday has seen many friends aweing over the adorable character and busy snapping Instagram-worthy pictures of POMPOMPURIN-styled dishes. Be prepared to lose all defenses when you are faced with POMPOMPURIN cuteness, cuteness and cuteness.

“How can we bear to eat this?”

That’s the first exclamation we made when the dishes were presented. After the mandatory photo taking session with the food despite our growling stomachs, we tucked in.

Verdict on taste & look:

The second runner up on the list is POMPOMPURIN Pudding and Ice cream served in a tall glass.

The first runner up is POMPOMPURIN’S Banana & Caramel Pancake (S$16.99).

Even though the pancake is a bit dry, the combination of pancake, cream, bananas and caramel can hardly go wrong.

POMPOMPURIN’S Coconut Milk Chicken Curry

This is our favourite dish. The adorable POMPOMPURIN head-shaped rice made us really excited! The flavourful mild coconut curry is not for the spice lover though.

POMPOMPURIN café is a family-friendly place for a relaxing weekend afternoon. We are very sure the adults will enjoy as much as or more than the kids! Please click HERE to see more pictures.
